It’s Friday again already and the end of another week! Last week my blog was about my back pain and I am afraid that I have spent another week not able to do much and I wanted to thank all the lovely people who have commented and sent their love and suggestions for me which has really helped me to stay positive too through it.
Anyway I finally went for an MRI scan today – my husband drove me as I still can’t drive with the pain. I have had an MRI scan in the past and had been very nervous about the whole procedure because I suffer from claustrophobia but this time I was a lot calmer with knowing what to expect and as I lay down on the section of the scanner that moves you into the MRI I tried to regulate my breathing and anyone that has had an MRI scan will know they give you a buzzer in your left hand to press if you feel uncomfortable at any time. Anyway, they put the buzzer in my hand, but me being the nervous person that I am with scans, I had to test the buzzer, didn’t I just to check that it worked (I am sure they are used to people like me!) The operator was really kind and did say that if ever I had to have any other part of me scanned I could always go to my doctor for some kind of relaxing tablet! The whole process would they say take about 12 mins but it felt way longer than that and when he said it was finished I was so tempted to shout “I am a celebrity GET ME OUT OF HERE!” Phew! I was out and could open my eyes. So the results will be in a few days and I can actually see what the problem is and hopefully it won’t be too serious.
